HipHopDX's Beauty & Brains is back, and we apologize for the delay. The transition of the new site made for some hold-ups, but here is our latest: a P.Y.T. straight outta Nevada. Aria balances a Criminology major with a modeling career. While her favorite songs, film and activities differ from the usual Hip Hop honey in this section, the video and pictures give hint why we deemed Aria right for the section, even if her shorter answers just stick to the facts.
Beauty & Brains: What are your plans and goals for the future?
Aria: I'm finishing up my degree In Criminology at this moment and would like to eventually pursue a job in this field. If the right doors would open in my modeling career, I would love to follow my desires of doing this full time and use up all my energy doing what I like to do most. Smiling for the camera. Ideally, if I could do both, I will.
Beauty & Brains: What are your turn ons and your turnoffs?
Aria: A turn on would be a man that makes me laugh, has a good personality, looks good, well-educated, and really goes out of his way to make people happy. A turn off would be a man without the qualities above.
Beauty & Brains: What is the stupidest pickup line that a guy has ever used on you?
Aria: The stupidest pickup line that a guy has ever used would be "Do you have a map? 'Cause I am lost in your eyes."
Beauty & Brains: What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
Aria: I would have to say that cliff-jumping in Montana in the middle of nowhere at some man-made lake called Fresno. During a summer vacation back home, my good friends and I thought it would be fun since none of our parents would ever let us do it. It is dangerous. We were always good children so it felt good rebelling later in life. [Laughs]
Beauty & Brains: What do you feel most comfortable wearing?
Aria: I am a shorts and t-shirt kind of girl. I love looking casual and feeling relaxed. I am far from high maintenance, but..can play the part, if needed.
Beauty & Brains: What's the most unusual place you've ever hooked up?
Aria: The most unusual place meeting someone was on MySpace. How'd it go? It actually went very well. We met and really connected and dated for a few years. Even though the relationship is no longer, he is one of my best friends still today. I have to get to know someone first before I consider a hook up.
Beauty & Brains: What's the most memorable pick up line you've ever heard?
Aria: "Boy you have some fine legs. I bet you?re a runner...Would you consider a jog sometime?"
Beauty & Brains: Go-to karaoke song?
Aria: "Before He Cheats" or "Cowboy Casanova," both by Carrie Underwood. I mean, if Im going to karaoke Im going to bring out the Country in me.
Favorite movie and actor?
Aria: My favorite movie of all time is P.S I Love You. This of course would because I love romance. My favorite actor is Gerard Butler because he is "hot" and good looking.
